Scholars, policymakers and people working in the justice sector will gather in Wellington this week to discuss whether restorative justice and Māori approaches could offer a way out of the prison crisis and New Zealand’s high imprisonment rate.

The conference at Victoria University’s Pipitea campus is to honour long time reform advocate Kim Workman.

Tracey McIntosh from the University of Auckland, who has worked extensively with women in prison, says in her presentation she will try to draw on the experience of those who have been harmed and who have harmed.

"What would restoration look for them? What would the rebalancing of relationships look like for them? What would it mean for a broader whānau? What does it mean for those yet to be born? I do think there are elements of restorative justice that really need to be situated in this sense of mokopunatanga. How do we health the generations that are even yet to come?" she says.
